DRIVING QUESTION: “Why do you feel you are ready to advance to the next grade level?”
This blog post is for my t-POL presentation! A t-POL is basically the same thing as an m-POL, but instead of mid year, it’s end year! That’s the only difference lol
Lets start by taking a quick look at my blog posts from the past two projects (that I have blog posts for)!
This was a project that fell under the subject of Scimatics (in the project “Ultimate Design Challenge”)! My “partner in crime” was my friend, the Great Cameroonian! This project was supposed to end in us making a 3D thing and printing it out using a 3D printer! Though that didn’t work out sadly :,(
Lemme elaborate a little! We were asked to make a 3D object using Tinkercad (a 3D printing/3D modelling app), me and Cameron originally wanted to do a circular pizza box, that ended up being to simple, so we decided to do two separate objects! A pizza, and a *normal* pizza box! After that, we went through the very painful process of presenting it in front of the class..
If you wanna see our presentation, here it is!!
Time to reflect…
I wish I had done more work to help Cameron, he probably did over 80% of the work if not more if I had helped out with the simple task of taking note of the calculations so that Cameron could figure out the volume and surface area.
That was on the second to last scimatics project, lets take a look at my most recent humanities project, “New Beginnings”!
This was most DEFINITELY my best projects, I actually really enjoyed doing the work, it was a fun last project! The fact that I was able to hand in every single assignment (although yes, some of them were late, BUT NOT BY MUCH!!), in my opinion, I did everything fairly well, but there is ONE thing that I could improve on. Actually getting things done ON TIME! That is something that has always been a bit of a challenge for me, although based off of my last few projects, I’d say that I’ve been ding much better!
Before I answer the driving question, I will be answering a few extra questions!
Q: Of the work you completed so far this year, what are you most proud of? Why?
A: hmm thats kinda a hard on to answer, that’s why I picked it! I’m going to be honest here, even though I wasn’t amazing at following the rules, I am really proud of my final images in the New Beginning project! I think I represented everything best I could, as well as how pretty the background photo is.
Q: Did all the work you completed this year meet your standards?
A: DEFINITELY NOT! I have extremely high standards for myself, but that just means I tend to work harder! Although through the past couple of months, I have worked harder than usual, and (for the most part) met my standards!
Q: What did/do you find frustrating about PLP work?
A: I am a VERY distractible person, and since half (if not more) of my life tends to be on a screen, including school, there are far to many distractions for someone like me. I am working on being less distracted, and I can promise you that it is getting better!
Alright now that all of that has been established, it is time… for everyone’s favorited part of a blog post… THE ANSWERING OF THE DRIVING QUESTION!!!
Question: “Why do you feel you are ready to advance to the next grade level?”
Answer: “I don’t! But thats what it going to feel like ever year isn’t it? I have had an entire year to improve and I took the opportunity, and I made use of it. Throughout the past 2 months, I have skyrocketed into my work and in my opinion, succeeded greatly in it. Most things I do now is made in a timely manner, yet is also quality work. I don’t feel ready to advance, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t. I most definitely can, I know I can, I’m just afraid of what the next year will bring me.”
